When spring comes, color comes back into my wardrobe and my life after hibernating all winter. I am like a butterfly coming out of the cocoon. This piece was made with paper clay, acrylic paint, stenciling, and transfer elements. "Garden Camouflage" is varnished, embedded in a floater frame, and ready to hang on your wall.
